Hi Mr.,

Rick currently doesn't have web access, but the below link should answer most of your questions regarding the Library of Congress acquisition of the Prelinger collection:

The Prelinger Archives film collection was acquired by the Library of Congress in August 2002. The Library has not yet processed the collection and cannot currently fulfill most research requests. The film materials are presently in storage pending the opening of the Library's new National Audio-Visual Conservation Center in Culpeper, Virginia, scheduled to open in 2006. However, Prelinger Archives holds approximately 4000 titles in video and digital formats, which are all available immediately through Getty Images and the Internet Archive (see above). Prelinger Archives retains the exclusive right to duplicate films and footage from its collection that are now held by the Library of Congress for twelve years.
